I am having an issue sub clipping some audio tracks. The original video file has 6 mono tracks, SFX, Dialogue, music, etc. I place the clip on the timeline, I delete the video and all unwanted audio tracks from the time line and only keep the SFX track that I want to sub clip. I command drag the SFX track from the timeline to my project panel and it creates a sub clip, however when I double click on that sub clip it opens up with all 6 audio channels. I place the sub clip on the timeline and its all 6 audio channels. I made sure to unlink all tracks from each other, when I double click on my SFX audio track that is alone on the timeline, it comes up in my program monitor alone (great). I tried command dragging it from the program monitor since there is only the one SFX track that I need to sub clip into my project panel and it creates a sub clip, however the same issue still persists my subclip is all 6 audio tracks. Not sure what I am missing here?
Have you tried modifying your audio before placing it in your timeline first? To do this you can select the clip in your project panel. Right click and select “Modify” and then “Audio Channels”(or Shift-G). A dialogue box will open and you’ll be able to uncheck the channels you don’t want leaving just your SFX channel. Then to make a true sub-clip you’d drag or open your clip to the viewer (not the timeline). Select your in and out points in the viewer and push “Ctrl-U”. A box will open so you can name the sub-clip and then hit “enter” and it will be added to your bin. I think this should work.
I haven’t tried unchecking the tracks in the modify audio menu option first then subclipping. Thank you Rob will definitely try that. Sounds like I need to duplicate the entire video 6 times with each track solo in the audio modify menu in order to subclip separately. A bit cumbersome but I’m not aware of a more efficient work flow.
Ouch! That is a lot modifying. One thing I forgot to mention is you can modify multiple clips at a time using that method by highlighting/selecting them in your project panel, so that might help a little bit.
